Butternut Squash Cabbage
- 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
- 4 cups green cabbage, thinly sliced
- 2 apples, cored and sliced
- 4 healthy chicken sausages (e.g., Blinsky's caseless lemon chicken sausages)
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. On a baking sheet, spread out the cubed butternut squash in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Roast in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the squash is tender and lightly browned.
3. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and sauté the sliced green cabbage until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Push the sautéed cabbage to one side of the skillet and add the sliced apples. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the apples are slightly softened.
5. In another skillet, cook the chicken sausages according to the package instructions until they are browned and cooked through.
6. Once the butternut squash is roasted, remove it from the oven and transfer it to the skillet with the cabbage and apples. Add the chopped sage and gently toss everything together to combine. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
7. Slice the cooked chicken sausages into bite-sized pieces and add them to the skillet with the vegetables. Toss gently to combine.
8. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
9. Serve the roasted butternut squash, green cabbage, apples, and chicken sausage mixture in bowls or on plates. Enjoy the delicious blend of sweet and savory flavors.
